Frais reassures travelers to enhance the bottom line in high-end airline, hotel, conference and cruise operations

According to Trip Advisor (2008) and (2007) eighty percent of passengers are afraid of the risk of contagions while traveling - their number one concern - although they are not always able to carry their own sanitizer.  No one needs to remind the cruise, hotel or airline industries about the havoc that communicable diseases can cause to an operation’s bottom line.  SARS, Swine Flu, Bird Flu, and norovirus devastated many travel providers over the past decade, and we can predict more outbreaks as the world gets closer.  Frais significantly reduces this risk of these sudden massive operational losses, while enhancing service with a new elegant experience for guests or passengers.

Bird flu and Swine flu are a growing threat to the global travel industry

BBC
BBC News
, February 2007

“Much of the globe has now been hit by the lethal strain of bird flu that is fast becoming a major avian killer around the world. Millions of birds have died or been destroyed as a result of outbreaks in dozens of countries since the H5N1 strain emerged in South-East Asia in 2003, before spreading to Europe and Africa.  The number of cases among humans is also rising - by the end of 2006 the number of human deaths from the disease had more than doubled in a year, with a noticeably higher mortality rate of almost 60%.”

Baltimore Dining Examiner
, 26 May 2009, "Food safety, handwashing and Swine flu - Oh My!" Interview with Juliet Bodinetz-Rich, Executive Director Bilingual Hospitality Training Solutions (BHTS)

Why is H1N1 so scary and have so much attention?
Juliet: Because it spreads so quickly in our global world, early death rates due to no immunity and because there is not a vaccine. There is fear as in previous pandemics in the past, i.e. 1918, 1957 that the virus might re-escalate in the fall. Scientists say the virus likes to survive in dry, cold weather (autumn) versus warm and moist summer weather.

What can restaurant owners do in light of the pandemic?
Juliet: Similar to most foodborne illnesses, swine flu is transmitted primarily through human to human contact. People are the major culprit in foodborne illnesses as they are in the spread of H1N1 or influenza. Regular and proper handwashing is the best prevention method to avoid transmission of any illness. Restaurant operators need to have a crisis plan in place in case the pandemic hits their area. The best time to plan for proper reaction and procedures is before the crisis hits. Things to consider would be: Restaurant operators need to always have a good personal hygiene program in place. This is the time to reemphasize with your staff that personal hygiene is crucial. Personal hygiene and most importantly, proper handwashing is the best method to PREVENT all disease. Management needs to make sure their staff is trained on proper handwashing techniques. ... Make sure you have enough supplies of detergent, sanitizer and hand sanitizer on site.

Sophisticated travelers want to protect themselves from germs.

“Germaphobic Guests: Travelers continue to suffer from germaphobia as 24 percent won't leave home without disinfectant/cleaning supplies, shower shoes, their own pillow, their own sheets/pillowcase, or their own towels, compared to 22 percent, last year. Travelers from the U.S. are more than twice as concerned as travelers from the U.K.”

“Some studies show increased levels of bacteria in water that comes out of the spigot in the airplane bathrooms, so if you're worried about that, carry a hand sanitizer and use it after you wash all the dirt off your hands.”

Eighty percent of all infectious diseases are transmitted by contact. The doorknob you grabbed hold of to enter the hotel room, for one; the phone used to call down to room service for champagne and finger sandwiches, for another. These are the types of inanimate surfaces that can act like a guest book of germs. There are ways to make your hotel stay a healthier one. Microbiologist Philip M. Tierno, Jr., who travels with germicide and flip-flops, calls them ‘protective-response strategies’. Wash your hands well and often. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer.”

"An airplane cabin may be a petri dish of germs ... since viruses and bacteria can adhere to objects such as seat backs and tray tables for hours, make sure you wash your hands frequently—even when you're not in close proximity to a sick passenger. (This is especially important before touching your face or eating.) If you can't get to the restroom to wash, use antibacterial wipes. A recent study at Weber State University, in Ogden, Utah, found that essential oils such as lavender spike, ravensara, and thyme linalool have antibacterial properties and are effective defenses against microbes."

The Impact of Illness (such as Swine Flu) Can Be Greatly Reduced in the Workplace

NYC Health
New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, "Guidance for Preventing the Spread of H1N1 (swine origin) Influenza in the Workplace", 22 May 2009

 “How can I reduce the risk of illness in the workplace?

  • Most importantly, remind employees that they should not come to work if they have flu-like symptoms (fever and cough). They should not return until 24 hours after their symptoms resolve.
  • Encourage employees to avoid touching their eyes, noses or mouths; and to wash their hands before and after eating, after using the bathroom, and any time hands are soiled. If a workplace lacks soap and water, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing 60% to 95% alcohol is a good substitute. Good hand hygiene is the best protection against infection and should always be practiced after contact with frequently-touched surfaces or other people’s hands.
  • Employers should review sick leave policies to determine whether policies are up to date and adequate to address employee questions and potential absences.
  • Employees should review sick leave policies and be familiar with their employers’ policies for handling absences prompted by illness or the need to care for household members who are sick.” (pdf)

Skin Care Science and Technology Research and Development, Gojo Industries, "Evaluating Effects of an Alcohol Hand Sanitizer Program on Employee Absenteeism: Pilot Results", May 2006

"Hands are the primary mode of transmission of many infectious diseases. Most workplace environments share key predisposing factors that contribute to infection transmission, such as close working environments, shared bathrooms, and break rooms for eating or cafeterias. Absenteeism caused by transmissible diseases is a major contributor to lost productivity in the workplace and to most companies..

This study (at FedEx) demonstrates that using an alcohol-based instant hand sanitizer in conjunction with a simple educational program in a workplace setting could produce a positive effect on absenteeism. The absenteeism rate observed in the intervention population was 21% lower than the non-intervention population, indicating this addition to a workplace wellness program could gain an employer several employee work days per year."

The number of absences was 50.6% lower in the test group (P < .001). The data strongly suggest that a hand hygiene program that combines education and use of a hand sanitizer in the classroom can lower absenteeism and be cost-effective. .." (pdf)

American Journal of Infection Control, "The effect of a comprehensive handwashing program on absenteeism in elementary schools:, June 2002

"..The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of both a hand-hygiene message campaign and the use of an alcohol gel hand sanitizer in decreasing the incidence of upper-respiratory illness among students living in university residence halls... 430 students .. The overall increase in hand-hygiene behavior and reduction in symptoms, illness rates, and absenteeism between the product group and control group was statistically significant. Reductions in upper respiratory–illness symptoms ranged from 14.8% to 39.9%. Total improvement in illness rate was 20%. The product group had 43% less missed school/work days. .." (pdf)

Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are safe for consumers, and they are safe to use in industrial settings.

“We administered a web-based questionnaire to SHEA, APIC, and EIN members to assess the frequency of fires associated with alcohol-based hand rub dispensers in healthcare settings. None of the 798 responding facilities using them reported a dispenser-related fire; 766 facilities had accrued an estimated 1,430 hospital-years of alcohol-based hand rub use.”… “Alcohol-based hand rubs have been used routinely by healthcare workers in some parts of Europe for decades.”

“Older children and adolescents also can use alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Younger children can use them, too — with an adult's help. Just make sure the sanitizer has completely dried before your child touches anything. This will avoid ingestion of alcohol from hand-to-mouth contact. Store the container safely away after use.”

“It's (SARS) expected to get worse. Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's flagship airline, has slashed more than a third of flights because of weakening demand. Some hotels reportedly are 90% empty. ‘Tourism is easily affected by fear. People who are planning their vacations find it easier to shift direction than to shift time,’ O'Rear says. ‘You can never make up lost tourism.’”

BBC
BBC News

“The WHO (World Health Organization) did not rule out the possibility that it (SARS) may also be transmitted when people touch objects such as lift buttons. Last year, Hong Kong has advised people to avoid crowded places and confined spaces. Airlines insist that an infected person cannot spread the virus throughout an aircraft. However, the WHO says that people sitting within two rows may be at risk.”

 “Airline travel has a significant effect on the spread of influenza, a new study reports, raising the question of whether flight restrictions may be helpful in controlling a pandemic.  Domestic airline travel in November was the best predictor of the speed of influenza spread, the researchers found, although influenza infections and deaths usually peak in late February…  This effect was particularly pronounced after the Sept. 11 attacks, when a temporary flight ban was instituted in the United States and airline travel volume was lower than in any other season from 1996 to 2005.”

USA Today
USA Today, "Is your cruise ship a clean machine?"
, May 2008

"In most cases of norovirus reported on cruise ships, the CDC has determined that the increased incidents of norovirus were sourced from passengers bringing the illness on board and transmitting it through direct or indirect contact—not from food or water sources... If water and soap are not available (perhaps on excursions), use an ethanol alcohol-based (a minimum 62%) hand sanitizer, preferably in a gel form."
